Neon Lights and Plane Tickets: Sci-Fi Poetic Prose Collection is a work of fiction in the dystopian, poetry, and metaphysical writing subgenres. It is best suited to the general adult reading audience owing to some moderate references to horror and violence. Penned by author Elsbeth Mareile G. C., this captivating collection promises to transport readers to vivid and imaginative worlds filled with cosmic horror and galactic urban legends. Through lush descriptions and evocative storytelling, we arrive at compact tales of dystopian societies masked by bright neon lights and illusions of technological progress.
Elsbeth Mareile G. C. has crafted a gorgeous work that allows readers to immerse themselves in different snapshots of dystopia with some really beautiful wordplay that sparks the imagination. The unique prose style effortlessly immerses readers into the intricacies of human nature and the complexities of the worlds they inhabit, yet some moments are totally relatable and draw parallels with modern life. The intimacy and alienation juxtaposed in ‘Touchscreen’ was my favorite as it explored the concept of a soul mate in the modern world. Each planet and entity is meticulously crafted, drawing readers deeper into the narrative with every turn of the page. I loved the presentation with moments of abstract art styling to keep that otherworldly feel going. From societal decay to the consequences of technological advancement, the collection explores a wide range of themes while delivering thought-provoking insights into the human condition. Overall, Neon Lights and Plane Tickets is a compelling read that will leave sci-fi and dystopian fans eagerly anticipating another volume: I know I certainly am.
